2013 Women's County Tournament

 This is the 6th year with the new tournament format and are still encourageing all ladies of any playing level to participate.  Our goal is to bring more and more ladies into the event as a tournament atmosphere, but also I good weekend to have fun and make some good memories.  Under the new format we had a GROSS and NET champion crowned for 2012.  For those that do not know what this means let me explain. 

Lets say you average 110 for 18 holes, with our new division if you go out and shoot 110 and we apply your handicap (38 in this case) your NET score is 72.  That's right you shot even par.  This allows everyone to play from a level playing field.  To sum it up, we have 2 divisions gross and net.  You will be placed in whatever division you place the highest in.  It's a win-win combination.  Sign up, bring a friend, tell a friend, and come have a good time at the Bay County Golf Course.

The following are the Champion Golfers of 2013:
